Fillabite Guide Service - Aransas Pass

Team up with Captain Randy Filla and Fillabite Guide Service for a unique Texas inshore fishing adventure! With more than 35 years of fishing experience under his belt, he knows these waters like the back of his hand and will help you get the job done, no matter your skill level.

You’ll be fishing on a versatile 24’ Haynie bay boat. She’s outfitted with a single 250 HP Mercury engine, enabling it to develop a top speed of an impressive 50 knots. With an engine like that, you’ll be on the fish in a snap! A full array of safety gear and navigation electronics can be found on board as well, including a wireless trolling motor for when you need to get close to easily spooked fish.

When it comes to the fishing itself, these are some very productive fishing grounds. The most common species you can expect to be going after include the likes of Speckled Trout, Bull Redfish, and big Black Drum. Whether it’s by trolling, popping, or spinning, Captain Randy will know the best way to handle any stubborn fish.

All the necessary rods, reels, and terminal tackle will be included in the price of the trip, along with fish cleaning services after the trip. You’ll need to have with you a valid Texas saltwater fishing license and feel free to bring some drinks or snacks if you like. When you’re all ready to go, get your game face on and get ready to hook ‘em until you drop.
